Exciting things are in store for avid "Red Dead Redemption" fans given Rockstar Games' recent announcement. The game developer hinted of what players can expect from the game's second installment titled "Red Dead Redemption 2."

Rockstar Games made its announcement on Oct. 19, Wednesday through a short statement posted on its official website that unveiled its planned release date for "Red Dead Redemption 2." Along with the release of an updated concept art, the game developer stated that the upcoming game will deliver an "epic" story that will depict the life of beloved characters.

A western action adventure game, "Red Dead Redemption 2" will also introduce a big "atmospheric world." The said feature promises to provide players with enough space to explore and live out their fantasies as a cowboy.

Another interesting information that Rockstar Games unveiled teased of a new online multiplayer experience. The game developer did not provide other details about the said feature. However, previous reports indicated of Rockstar's parent company Take Two's registration for a new "Red Dead" domain.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" will also be released to two platforms namely the Playstation 4 and Xbox One devices. It is still unclear if the said game will be available for Windows PC. At this time, Rockstar only mentioned the two gaming platforms in its announcement.

Meanwhile, the upcoming game's latest concept art featured a clearer illustration of seven game characters. A previous version of the said image depicted a similar drawing but with a silhouetted illustration of the characters.

In other news, the recent "Red Dead" hype appears to have benefited Take Two's stock levels positively. Rockstar's parent company's stocks increased 5.7 percent, Game Zone reported. The game developer's earlier cryptic social media messages may have also helped to pull the said company's stocks to a higher level.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" has been scheduled for release in fall 2017. A new trailer will also be released on Oct. 20, Thursday. Watch the "Red Dead Redemption's" multiplayer mode in the clip below:
